Sprinkler & Domestic
Backflow, a potential hazard in your water supply, can lead to contamination and pose serious health risks. As you know, it’s importance to maintain a safe and clean water system. That’s why we offer professional backflow preventer installation and inspections to safeguard your water supply from the risks of backflow.
Understanding Backflow and Its Dangers
Backflow occurs when there is a reversal of water flow in your plumbing system, causing contaminated water to flow back into the clean water supply. This can happen due to a sudden drop in water pressure or a back-siphonage effect, which can occur in various scenarios such as during a water main break, firefighting operations, or when a garden hose is submerged in a contaminated substance. Backflow can introduce pollutants, chemicals, bacteria, and other contaminants into the potable water system, compromising the safety and quality of your water supply.
